Review by fhqwhgads

fhqwhgads The Bathtub Gin and the Down with Disease are the "long jams" of this show, and Bathtub Gin is remarkable for retaining its peaky integrity from pre-hiatus versions and Down with Disease takes a 3.0-ish turn towards exploratory jamming that pays off pretty well, retrospectively, for a 2014 jam. The Moma Dance, 555, Stash, Limb by Limb, and David Bowie all have faithful Type-I readings here. It's, in fact, this version of 555 that re-convinces me that it's a worthy addition to the Phish song catalogue. This is not necessarily a God-tier Phish show, but with two jams approaching 20 minutes, it deserves a listen from even the most sclerotic of phans. Fuego gets an interesting rendition contrasted to the two most previous Type-II excursions. It's an average-great show, but one that phans of 2017 should probably revisit, as it features Trey playing his guitar during the verses of songs, something that happens less and less as 3.0 projects, and which I wish he'd address because it dampens the jams from shows as fertile as those of the Baker's Dozen or the New Year's Run 2017.
